Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is still attempting to win U.S. approval to offer 2017 diesel models as the United States government chooses whether to take legal action, CEO Sergio Marchionne stated last week.

In January, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) alleged the Italian-American automaker of unlawfully utilizing hidden software to enable excess diesel emissions from 104,000 U.S. trucks and SUVs. The EPA has rejected to approve Fiat Chrysler approval to offer 2017 diesel models.

“We have been dealing with the EPA and CARB, we have engaged legal counsel. The only thing I can tell you is that we continue to deal with the agencies to try and solve this,” Marchionne told reporters at the Geneva Motor Show.

“We continue to provide full cooperation to the firm to try get this issue solved. I believe my main goal now is to get certification for the 2017 models,” he stated.

Recently, the U.S. Justice Department told a judicial panel in a formerly unreported filing that the government continues to think about whether to commence judicial procedures in connection with the offenses alleged by the EPA.
